The General -vs- The GSB Oracle
Right now the supposedly Oracle of the Golden Snowball stats is getting his butt kicked by the General for our Winter outlook predictions. I'm not yelling Uncle yet though because I still think we have at least another 4 - 5 weeks of on and off snow left. I look OK on some of my predictions and the General right now looks better on his. Here is our predictions that we posted back in November of 2007:
The Generals Snow Predictions
Albany - 65 (-8.2)
Bingo - 85 (-20)
Buffalo - 105 (-6.3)
Rochester - 95 (+5.3)
Syracuse - 125 (-17.9)
Syracuse -151 inches (-43.9)
Buffalo - 123 inches (-24.3)
Rochester - 121 inches (-20.7)
Binghamton - 106 inches (-41)
Albany - 72 inches (-15.2)
I'm not real worried about Buffalo, Rochester and Albany right now but I do have some concerns with Binghamton and Syracuse. Another good storm like last weekend and I'm looking better. Right now I have to give Kudos to the General though for looking pretty, pretty, pretty good. Can you tell Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of my favorite shows?
Here are my snow season predictions!
Here are the Generals season predictions!
Tom posted a comment that Syracuse lost an inch of snow overnight and he is right. For some reason Syracuse dropped from 108 inches down to 107 inches. It could be an adjustment fixing a previous mistake at NOAA or it could be a mistake that was made overnight. We'll have to wait and see if the inch gets added back or not. Right now the race just got closer and Syracuse's lead has been cut to less than 7 inches without the other cities getting any snow. Lets hope that doesn't happen down the stretch too many time. Daver, where are you? We all miss your great input!
Have a Great Day All!
